And muscles suddenly see some of these fires and it's in California. But but you know I mean we can certainly relate today here in Colorado because we've had our share share of fires. And there's nothing to say that we won't have another anytime soon but. We knew what would in Southern California. Most of the time when you see a flier out there it's out the middle no word. It's up the mountains in the words you know in a farce while whatever it's in. It's a wave from most people other houses often that are are threatened. But the most part there it's out can pretty much just an abandoned area but the fire this Thomas fire is like. It's like it's it has said he is like if he would do the same fire and we're talking about I don't know I think there at 5000 acres on fire right now. And it would be like being here at center at looks like in neighborhood. Guys does the middle of loan not all of us. Hard and each got one was a mall. There was a mall nearby and people that are fighting this thing it's as it comes to the fence area of their home ice on that. Asked where is there is stand there with a garden hoses like. I feed off their yard. Even I know what's in the news and I know you're probably aware of the CNET broke out yesterday I think it was.
